(s[a^]l"p[=e]), E. Salpas (s[a^]l"p[.a]z). [NL.: cf. L.
salpa a kind of stockfish.] (Zo["o]l.)
A genus of transparent, tubular, free-swimming oceanic
tunicates found abundantly in all the warmer latitudes. See
Illustration in Appendix.
Note: Each species exists in two distinct forms, one of which
lives solitary, and produces, by budding from an
internal organ, a series of the other kind. These are
united together, side by side, so as to form a chain,
or cluster, often of large size. Each of the
individuals composing the chain carries a single egg,
which develops into the solitary kind.
